Emma shares her pioneering approach in connecting human resources colleagues through the company's Environment, Social & Governance (ESG) framework, describing some work that took place at a town hall meeting, and why this work is important and inspiring for HR colleagues and the business.

Supporting neurodiverse colleagues and working parents 

Discussing her commitment to supporting neurodiverse colleagues and working parents, including the process to gender equalise parental leave at QBE, Emma suggests that a technique to help achieve change and further support colleagues is to look at whether a company’s internal culture, policies and practices in fact match its PR efforts.

  • Gender equal parental leave
  • Connecting HR to the E, S and G in ESG
  • Supporting neurodiverse colleagues
